All the elements of intrigue are there, but Constance in particular has always bored me. Even with all the flash-bang-dazzle going on in the Tomb, I seem to be reading it from a distance, not really engaged.
And please - no more virtual reality day-trips through his own mind for Aloysius! The plot while complicated, some might even say convoluted, was not at all difficult to follow and all aspects meshed together in perfect symmetry.
There were no loose ends left hanging. In short, I gave this book a 5 Star rating because there was nothing about it I did not like.
In fact it motivated me to purchase all the other novels in the Pendergast Series. Due to the ludicrous costs of some of my go to authors I have stopped reading quite a few of them and have been reading "new" to me authors.
My first book was a Pendergast mystery. It "grabbed me", was fast paced, quirky, interesting, informative and tough to put down. Really, really tough to put down.
I liked the book so much I bought all the Pendergast series and read one right after the other. Pendergast is an odd one and would never exist in real life, particularly in the cookie cutter FBI , but this is fiction and we all want a hero to have what he needs at his disposal and doing it in style is not a bad way to go.
All the characters came to life for me. I asked the same questions. Felt the same emotions. If you like fiction, mystery, a little fantasy thrown in for good measure, you will love these authors and their star characters, FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast and Lt.
I read all of this series and give a five star rating to each book. I thought the story was too convoluted for my taste.
Some parts of the plot were tied together feebly in my opinion. The book started out well enough. In a recent interview Ms.

This book reaches new lows. I thought Predator was bad. I want to smack Lucy, shoot Marino, and shake Kay till her teeth rattle. Murders are thrown in willy-nilly, almost as if she ran out of plot so she introduced another one but not in any sort of chronological order.
Plenty of extraneous characters who contribute nothing to the plot. The return of the god-awful Dr. Self - could we just murder her already?
Cornwell used to be a great author, and I loved her earlier books. But she seems to have developed an intense hatred for her own characters, which makes her books increasingly painful to read.
Thanks to this coming across my BookBub list, I spent two bucks and three hours reminding myself why I am no longer a Cornwell fangirl.
The novelty of this wears off in about five minutes, however, leaving the character overly obvious, lacking in nuance. The mark of a wise writer is to quit before the plots become convoluted and characters become irrelevant.
Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. That she had to conform to that jaded subset of readers who insist that all characters in a book including the starring cast must be screwed up in a big way?
Has everything today been taken over by these overage adolescents? Marino has de-evolved into a quasi-thug who only exploits the concern that people close to him have for his welfare.
I know Lucy had to grow up sometime, but did it have to be into a distaff Steven Seagall clone? I was surprised that a book by a best-selling author would be so disjointed.
Story lines are confusing, plot development was poor and sometimes random and the ending was unsatisfactory.
Perhaps I should have read books before reading this one, but I was under the impression they were "stand-alone". I definitely should have read the reviews before buying it.
Reluctant to give it one star! Maybe the worst book I ever read Meandering plot. No more Cornwell for me.
I have not read all of the Scarpetta novels I normally like Patricia Cornwell and Dr. Kay Scarpetta, but this book As with other reviewers, I felt the book was a little slow and the plot was at times hard to follow.
I know every "hero" needs a "villain," but a psychiatrist with her own mental issues is not what I pictured It almost seems like if I had read all of the Scarpetta novels Used to thoroughly enjoy the Scarpetta books
